What Makes Us Unique

In a nutshell

Get married in the company of some of the world's greatest artists at Manchester Art Gallery. Situated in the heart of the city, Manchester Art Gallery's magnificent Victorian architecture, contemporary glass atrium and superb collection of art make it a fabulous and unique place to tie the knot. Hold your ceremony in Gallery 16 surrounded by paintings by LS Lowry and Valette, then celebrate with drinks in the beautiful and romantic Victorian Galleries. Dining may also take place in the galleries or you may prefer the Atrium. This is also the perfect spot for dancing until the early hours.
